Correcting out of sequence Figure numbers

I have some figures whose numbers are out of order sequence. For instance
Figure 3 appears before Figure 2. How do I correct the numbers? If I just
delete the number and change it will that break the cross references?

Thanks.

The answer may depend on how you inserted the Figure Number and which
version of Word you are using. Word's numbering is a nightmare when it goes
wrong and deleting the numbers may not resolve the problem. See the
following FAQ for an explanation and some ideas of how to use numbering in
Word that will be reasonably stable.

Try selecting the ones that are out of sequence and then press F9 (to update
the fields)
